Vote Housing for the 2021 Election

August 23, 2021

The federal election has been called to occur on September 20, 2021. At the ballot boxes next month, make a difference and vote to end homelessness and housing need.

ONPHA, alongside many other regional and national housing organizations, has joined the national, non-partisan
Vote Housing campaign to end homelessness and make housing safe and affordable in Canada. The campaign works to engage and mobilize Canadians across the country to pledge to Vote Housing in the upcoming election and ensure all political parties are making bold investments into affordable housing in Canada.

Earlier this month, a new nation-wide Nanos Research Poll found that majority of Canadians support and would be more supportive of a political party proposing and taking action to end homelessness and build affordable housing. Safe, decent and affordable housing matters to Canadians and we want political leaders to take action by implementing policies that provide housing for all communities. Here are some key takeaways from the poll, which highlight just how important housing is in the upcoming election:
